The sequel to the ever-trending sushi and the ‘go-to’ shops. In Hawaii, poke is just about everywhere, from grocery stores to gas stations to restaurants.. Now the popular bowl is making it’s
descent into Canada, with multiple storefronts opening up in Toronto and Vancouver.
The bowls are often made up of rice and marinated raw tuna (or salmon) mixed into a free-form salad.
The toppings truly depend on wherever you go. In Hamilton, Ontario, PokehBar has more modern toppings like avocado, cucumber, onions, and a variety of nuts. Meanwhile, in Toronto, Poke Guys has traditional Poke toppings like shoyu, masago, edamame & kimchi. (Both places are equally delicious by the way – highly recommend)
Either way, if you like sushi – you’ll definitely be a fan of poke.
